How Do I Renew an SSL Certificate?
To renew an SSL certificate, you need only to purchase a new certificate for the domains in question. The process of purchasing a new SSL and purchasing a renewed SSL is identical and can be a multi-step process that requires your input at various steps.
For SSL certificates purchased from Hostwinds, our technical support will gladly assist in installing and configuring the certificate for the domain in question when submitting a ticket. Our support technicians can install for a one-time fee SSL certificates purchased from third-party vendors.
Why Do I Need to Purchase a New SSL Certificate to Renew my Old One?
When an SSL certificate is created, it is issued with an expiration date. As a result, a new certificate will need to be issued and installed. This requires purchasing a new SSL certificate which will have the updated information and expiration date.
